Importing a Physical Device as an NI-DAQmx Simulated Device

To create an NI-DAQmx simulated device for a physical device, use the Import and Export feature to complete the following steps:

  1. Select File┬╗Export.
  2. Select the physical devices you want to create an NI-DAQmx simulated device for.
  3. Click OK to create a .nce file.
  4. Select File┬╗Import and click OK to import the .nce file created in the previous step.
    • If you have a physical device on the system you are importing to, you have two options. You can overwrite the existing physical device with the configuration that is in the .nce file. You also can import the NI-DAQmx simulated device as a simulated replica of the physical device that you have in your system.
    • If you do not have a physical device in your system, completing the import wizard results in an NI-DAQmx simulated version of the device that is in the configuration .nce file.
